JustMilk consists of a US non-profit and a UK for-profit organisation developing the Nipple Shield Delivery System (NSDS), a novel medical device with the potential to improve the safety, efficacy, and access to life-saving medications, vitamins, and nutrients to breastfeeding infants globally.
When worn by a mother during breastfeeding, the NSDS releases active pharmaceutical agents into milk which is then consumed by the infant. A wide range of medications and nutrients could be delivered to infants for treatment or prevention of conditions which may include diarrhoeal disease, HIV, malaria, or malnutrition.
With the NSDS, JustMilk aims to bridge a global drug delivery technology gap for breastfeeding infants, particularly in developing countries where it could overcome conventional administration challenges associated with limited availability of potable water, refrigeration, and medical care. JustMilk is currently seeking pharmaceutical partners.
